    Guide: Washington, Alaska

    Lauren was first drawn in by the community and adventure of climbing and expeditions when she moved to Colorado from her home state of Washington. Since then, she has passionately pursued spending time learning and teaching in wild spaces. Before coming to Alpine Ascents she worked with Outward Bound for seven years in many capacities, leading expeditions in Colorado, Alaska, Ecuador, Utah, and California. Personal climbing trips have taken her across the world to places such as Argentina, Thailand, Mexico, and Canada. Lauren values the authentic relationships that can be cultivated quickly in the backcountry, and the perspective that trying hard in the mountains brings. When not in the mountains Lauren can usually be found in the desert, drinking coffee, rock climbing, biking, drawing, or catching up with loved ones.
